on for this president. joining me now is political strategist angela rye. thank you both for being with us. >> thank you, reverend al. >> jarret, let me go to you first. tax fairness is a big part of what the president wants to get done. take a look at this. there are many middle class households that are actually paying a higher tax rate than households that make over a million dollars a year because they don't get most of their money from investments. will the president's policies change this problem? >> they will and they already are, to some extent. but there's more to be done there, just like the president just said. in the deal that ended the fiscal cliff, the tax rate at least for folks at the very top of the income scale, above $450,000, on capital gains and dividends, capital gains is what you get when you sell an appreciated stock. its value goes up. those are called capital gains. 20% is already below the tax rate that folks at the top of the scale pay on their earnings. so the president is saying there's a lot more room there to close out some of those loopholes and deductions. you mentioned
their ears and listen to the american people. joining me now, joan walsh and angela rye. how can republicans be so disconnect frd the will of the american people? >> i think when folks really focus on winning elections and not representing people, you lose sight of what's most important. public service is just that. >> we've seen it with interracial marriage. we've seen it throughout time. and sometimes you have to help folks to see what really matters and how to move them ahead on issues that they may be uncomfortable with. the american public has shifted. the party is still the same, but they're focused on winning elections. >> angela's point, some of them were contentious, some of them were the majority, but slightly. but when you look at minimum wage, joan, 71% of americans want to see minimum wage increase. 71%. how can the gop oppose 71% of the country. these polls are national, but increasing what you have is really like two nations. you have these red states and these red districts and you have house gerrymandering so that all of these -- many of these republicans think about is thei
by janay's mother angela blakely. miss blakely, first i want to say how sorry i am for your loss. >> thank you. >> and i know that you're just going through the viewing. the funeral is a couple days off. but you wanted to come and lend your voice even in your pain to putting attention on this issue of gun violence that has robbed your daughter. tell us the type of person janay was. >> janay was -- pardon me. >> take your time. we understand. >> janay was a beautiful person. she was fun loving. she was like the life of the party to be around. she always loved to dance. always loved to make people smile. even in my times of me being a little mad or frustrated with janay, she would always do something to make me laugh or smile all the time. because that was my buddy. that was may baby. she couldn't stand for me to be mad with her or anything. my daughter was a wonderful person. she just so happened to, you know, been at the wrong place at the wrong time or befriend the wrong person. >> now, she was not a troubled child. this was not someone that was hanged in the streets there. one of the thi
meetings. joining me now are angela rye and dana millbank. is this really the master plan to save the party? >> you know, it's just so hard to keep abreast of all of ted cruz's out rages. he's been on the job for six weeks and he's already sort of rivaling joe mccarthy. you know, in fairness to karl rove, he is telling the republicans what they need to hear. and i suspect republican leaders would like to do it. the problem is you can see like a guy from ted cruz, there's no way to control him. he has this swollen sense of his own importance. and he's made -- look, obviously, he's infur rating the democrats. but even members of his own party are starting to get sore about this. they realize there's nothing they can do to control him. and they are becoming the face of the party. >> but angela, some members of his own party may begin to know it, but marco rubio is praising him as a superstar. look at ted cruz's resume. he believes sharia law is replacing american law. he believes medicaid is unconstitutional. he proposed state nullification of the affordable care act. he even thinks there's a
